I used to enjoy Kilwins at other places on vacation. Here, I've had ice cream there twice in the last 2 months and the whole thing was sub-standard. From the long line with only 2 teens working, to the tubs of ice cream ALL looking half melted with scoops taken out and then thrown back in and mushed around (looked liked leftovers thrown back in), to the dirtiness of the display glass and framework.....to the poor quality ice cream. This Kilwin's is at death's door. Haagen Daz is good, and so is the fresh, low-fat lime/pineapple/orange frozen yogurt at Ambrosia.

OMG! Jackson's in Dania was one of my favorite haunts when I lived in Ft. Lauderdale. We always went for the kitchen sink. Mmmmmm good.

Can't wait to retire, move to TV, and find that all I have to complain about is my ice cream shop being fresh out of mint chocolate chip.
Oh, the horrors!

Default Kilwin's

I have been in there several times and have found, no hot fudge, out of flavors, one employee working and prices are too high... I moved to the Villages 7 months ago and was shocked there were only a couple of ice cream places.

Tonight driving home on rt27/441 I was thinking this would be a great site for an ice cream business.....

Most Friendly's went out of business about 2 years ago. At least in New England.

We visited Mystics for the first time this evening (hic)! I had the Baileys and hubby had a Mounds cream. Although there are many flavor choices It's all real (homemade)ice cream with no low fat or low sugar choices so its not a place we can visit often! The portions are large ($6) each and when we do go back we will share! The place is full of Beatle Mania and lava lamps and very friendly!

We are all a little older than we like to admit. Hippie type places were actually about 45 years ago! YIKES!

I am from New England. In April, the ice cream stands opened and were busy, busy, busy till Fall set in. When I moved to Florida, I imagined there would be lots of ice cream stands open year round. Much to my dismay, there are basically no ice cream stands anywhere. Florida is missing out on a gold mine. We want ice cream!!!!

I guess I don't know what an ice cream "stand" is. What I've seen here is: kilwins, mystics, ambrosia, Ollie's, Chis, High Five, Peachwave, Coldstone, Haagen-Daz PLUS Sonic, several McDonalds and Wendys and a Steak and Shake that all sell some form of "ice cream"! What else could you ask for?



Ambrosia at Lake Sumter is my personal favorite!
